    The Dusy Ershim is an extremely difficult and beautiful 4x4 trail located in the middle-of-nowhere portion of the Sierra National Forest in California. It's often compared to The Rubicon Trail with similar granite slabs and towering pines, but most folks agree current trail conditions and the 30 mile length make it much tougher. The entire trail is higher elevation (9 to 10k feet), so there's an even shorter wheeling season of Aug 1 through Nov 1 depending on snowpack. This challenging overland adventure will entail rock-crawl style wheeling for 3 to 4 days with primitive tent camping by the trail each night. IMPORTANT: Please read this post in the pre-planning thread to know what you're getting into, this is not a typical Offroad Passport overland trip. ALSO: Note these dates could shift depending on weather or wildfires. The listed dates are actual wheeling dates (3 to 4 days), so add in time for travel to and from the Shaver Lake area.

  3. We had a wonderful off-road adventure in Thailand. It's been quite a while, but while rummaging through my data I stumbled across photos and our travel diary - and have incorporated this into a travelogue. The country offers a lot, apart from fords, rivers, dusty and muddy tracks. We were there in the dry season, in December - in the rainy season (May to October) many of our dirttracks would not have been possible at all, with a rental car with street tires. Friends of ours were on our tracks in 2018 in January and are still raving about their trip on their own. Outside the tourist areas, you can experience a much more untouched Thailand. Probably it is more a teaser than a travelogue. I try to show that we can live an adventure, without a lot of preparation or even to own a 4x4. And that you even dont have to spend a lot of $$$, to get addicted by that way of travelling, an 4x4 overlanding adventure. To travel solo abroad, without beiyng in a group - is part of the adventure in my eyes.

    The last adventure around Mammoth was so much fun, we're doing it again for those that missed it! Saturday & Sunday we'll hit a total of 3 to 4 very scenic moderate-rated trails including the famous Tucson Wash. Saturday night will be primitive tent camping near one of the trails. There's an optional extra trail on the way home Sunday (rated difficult). Full details & RSVP here... Please note this is an Offroad Passport Club members-only event. View membership options →

    Red Creek is an amazing hidden desert oasis only about 90 minutes from Cave Creek, AZ. Join us on this unique moderately difficult 4x4 trail that runs right through the creek. We'll tent camp where the the canyon collides with the Verde River, enjoying the relaxing sounds of running water and the beauty of several large oak trees. After leisurely breaking camp the next morning, we'll travel the same route in reverse to exit. Full details & RSVP here... Please note this is an Offroad Passport Club members-only event.

  8. We had an awesome time. Pups and us are so exhausted but what an amazing trip!! Link to our photos. Trip photos On the way home Marty was kind enough to follow us for a bit as we were spewing out smoke. Turns out the output shaft seal on the transfer case popped out and sent fluid back over the exhaust. It smoked like crazy and coated the underside and rear tire with oil. Thankfully we didn't catch on fire. So we are fixing that issue too. She sure was a cranky XJ this trip!!
  9. This is the new event post. Trip were postponed from July to August due to national forest closures due to wildfires. Original planning discussion can be found here. Northern AZ Overland Traverse Friday August 20 & Saturday August 21 | Cottonwood to Williams, AZ Primitive Tent Camping | No Facilities Join me for 2 days and 135-ish miles of dirt therapy on this overland-style adventure! We’ll be running a modified version of the Northern Arizona Overland Traverse, which I’ve modified to be shorter, adding in a few side-stops. This route will take us through the chaparral forested Prescott NF and into the higher altitude ponderosa pines of Kaibab NF. We’ll start our trip in the town of Cottonwood, meeting up for a great breakfast before departing. Along the way we’ll take in several different views of Sycamore Canyon as we stop along the rim in several places. The majority of our ride will be easy trails, with a decent stretch of moderate trails with a few small technical sections. We’ll have the option of a short hike to see some pretty amazing cliff dwellings overlooking the red rocks. Camp will be made in the cool pines in Kaibab NF. The following day, we’ll head out to Sycamore Point for some panoramic views, and wind our way north, with our final stop in Williams. While there, we can check out Route 66, grab some lunch (or an early dinner), before parting company and heading home. Meetup for Breakfast We'll grab some breakfast in town at Crema Craft Kitchen, an award-winning brunch joint. We'll hang out, drink coffee, eat some great food, talk about the plan, and head out when we’re ready! When: August 20th @ 7am Where: Crema Craft Kitchen (link) 917 N Main St, Cottonwood, AZ 86326 **Please arrive fueled up and ready** Parking: There are 2 public (and free) lots within 1 block north and south of the restaurant South (closest): 34.74701179140745, -112.02754154260568 North: 34.74805909700933, -112.02644536506874 Trip Itinerary Please note that the itinerary is approximate. Day 1: Friday, August 20th Breakfast meetup (7am) Depart after breakfast Hit the road! Cruise down 89a and through Jerome Turn north into Prescott National Forest Scenic Drive (easy) Break for lunch Optional hike to the dwellings (300ft elevation gain) Back on the road! Scenic drive (easy to moderate) Cross over into Kaibab National Forest Camp Finding (Excess drive may be approx 5-10mi depending on availability of sites) Set up camp! Day 2: Saturday, August 21st Wake up / Pack up / Eat Hit the road, Jack! If needed, we'll stop in Williams for fuel Trail ride to Sycamore Point Take a break, explore, enjoy the views Trail ride ending in downtown Williams on Old Route 66 Get your kicks on Route 66 (Williams, AZ) Grab some lunch locally (tons of options) Check out the sites, enjoy the town Part ways and head home via your favorite highway (if you want!) Odds are, you'll be home by dark on Saturday Trail Difficulty | Exploratory Note that I have NOT run these trails personally, hence the "exploratory" status. Based on research, the majority of our trail time will be easy dirt roads. There will be an approx 4-5mi stint that is moderate, with a few sections requiring 4L. Link to map tracks and waypoints here ***The route is subject to change based upon damage sustained by the Rafael Wildfire Average Weather | Area Weather for the Timeframe of this Trip As we'll be at an altitude of over 6,000ft for the majority of our trip, I'd expect seasonal highs of 78. Our preferred campsite is at 8,000ft and should be around a high of 73* based on seasonal average highs. Sunrise: 5:23am Sunset: 7:46pm Moon Phase: New Moon (perfect for stargazing) Avg High Temp: 78* Avg Low Temp: 52* Williams Altitude: 6,700ft Camping Altitude: 7,000-8,000ft (temperature falls 5* per 1,000ft) Approximate Trip Milage The below are APPROXIMATIONS of speed, and duration. Distance is accurate. Anticipation is we will spend the majority of our time in 2H or 4H, meaning we should be pretty fuel efficient. The passage into Kaibab will require 4L in a few spots. Our furthest distance without a fuel stop will be (101 miles). Based on the above estimates, we should be making camp around 4 to 5pm. However, that is a SWAG (smoking wild-ass guess). If it begins to approach dark quicker than expected, we'll camp at the first suitable spot (sunset isn't until 7:46pm). Requirements A high clearance 4x4 truck or suv with a low range transfer case option, suitable front & rear recovery point, aggressive A/T or M/T tires While not required, aftermarket skid plates, rock rails, and sway-bar disconnects are recommended. Rigs & drivers must meet all the typical state/federal legal requirements for on-highway vehicles (license, insurance, registration, seatbelts, lights, etc.) Vehicle should be mechanically sound and safe to drive Drivers of varying experience should be fine on this trip PRIMITIVE CAMPING Camping stuff (tent, sleeping bag, chair, stove, etc.) Other Important Info Bring 2 lunches, 1 dinner, 1 breakfast, snacks MORE water than you need Camping (PRIMITIVE) We'll camp at high elevation (approx 8,000 feet) where temps are expected to drop to 50 degrees. Please remember appropriate clothing and bedding. This is during summer, high summer, so plan accordingly with appropriate clothing, sunscreen, and MORE water than you think you need. Average seasonal high temp is 82 for the area. Monsoon. Summer brings the monsoon. And while we haven't had a good one in a long time, this just might be our year. Rain is entirely possible. We'll keep an eye on the forecast as we get closer.
